Noah Ryan Lowry (born October 10, 1980, in Ventura, California) is a left-handed starting pitcher for the San Francisco Giants of Major League Baseball.

With only average velocity on his fastball, Lowry was not widely regarded as a top prospect, and did not make Baseball America's list of the team's ten best prospects in either 2003 or 2004. However, he has found quick success in the Major Leagues, largely thanks to his changeup, which has been ranked among the National League's best. He also throws a curveball and a slider.

Lowry, who bats right-handed, is also known as one of the better hitting pitchers in the National League, with a career batting average of .170. When he was called up in September 2003, he hit a double in his first career at bat. In 2005, he hit .271, drove in seven runs, and had six extra base hits in 59 at bats. He is occasionally used as a pinch hitter when the team is out of position players. He is also occasionally used as a pinch runner.
